Hi there.

I'm using a T.16000M joystick and it works perfectly in its normal mode.
But I'm facing a problem when loading a script configuration in Target.

What is happening is that sometimes (most of the times actually) it takes a little bit more to load the script, just a few seconds more, then when I check the Windows game controllers status I see

T.16000M, OK
Thrustmaster Combined, OK

The Target device analyzer also shows the 2 joystick active...

What is happening is that for whatever reason Windows is "not hiding" the T.16000M by keeping the Thrustmaster Combined virtual joystick only.
And on the Windows device settings page I see T.16000M Setup Incomplete. Restart Device.
This is very annoying because the physical joystick is still sending direct X input to programs, like Discoord for instance, it reads an input defined from the virtual joystick script + a DX input from the T.16000M in normal mode... When I restart it then it loads correctly and only the Thrustmaster Combined virtual joystick is active.

I'm using the latest 2018_FFD.exe drivers, and Target_v3018(328V2).exe software and I'm on Windows 10.
I don't really know when it started to act like this... any ideas of what might be causing this issue?

Thanks in advance.

I have seen several people report issues like this with TARGET over the years. I don't think there is any one solution to solve it except to completely remove and re-install TARGET and the drivers for your controllers. At least I have seen some people say they did that and the problem went away, but I'm not sure.

I tried to remove, re-install, use different USB ports, etc., but no luck...

The facts are these:

1) This is not a consistent behavior, I mean sometimes it just works as it should
2) When the problem occurs there are two "annoying ways" ways to solve it:
2.a) I unplug and re-plug the stick, this solves it 100% of times
2.b) Reboot the PC, most of the times it works, but not always, sometimes I need to reboot it twice

I tried this software USBDeview to make solution 2.a) simpler by running a bat file but it doesn't work; I have to physically connect and disconnect the stick.

Thrustmaster support says I should try it in another PC with USB 2.0 ports (mine are 3.0 and 3.1 but they were supposed to be backward compatible...)

I guess I have to live with it for the time being...

In case someone else is facing this kind of problem, I'm to inform that since I got TARGET to load upon Windows startup, I never faced the problem again.
This leads me to think that the issue might be caused by the loading order of the drivers. There might be some conflict with another device which I couldn't trace, but by loading TARGET automatically upon startup seems to get it to load properly at all times. Thrustmaster support suggested I should reinstall the OS. No way! Thanks to Drakoz and all involved in the development of a sigle script/multi profile solution, which was what actually made me set up Target to run upon windows start, now I have Target running smoothly all time, no issues. Thank you.
